Since giving this book to my nephew 12+ years ago, it has become some what of a family tradition. Every child in our family since then now has the book too! I used to read it to Trevor quite a bit before he started wanting to read books with a little more story line to them... but we still enjoy it every now and then.
One thing from the book that has always stuck is a line from the book...
"I love you right up to the MOON," he said, and closed his eyes.
"Oh, that's far," said Big Nutbrown Hare. "That is very, very far."
Big Nutbrown Hare settled Little Nutbrown Hare into his bed of leaves. He leaned over and kissed him good night.
Then he lay down close by and whispered with a smile, "I love you right up to the moon - AND BACK."
